Fr. Barron to Mundelein rectorship, who knew?

New head man at Mundelein Seminary, reported a week ago by the Daily Herald. Period. It’s no small deal. He has a unique presence and as they say in show biz, chops. Widely published, a television performer a la the great Fulton Sheen, though of considerably different style, a heavyweight theologian. (And brother of the Sun-Times executive editor, for what that’s worth.)

No small deal but overlooked by Trib and Sun-Times in a way that was unthinkable in the 70s, if not later. Where are you, Manya Brachear? No spot news in your quivering quiver?
